  1. lbunuel's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    This is unrivaled in its creative energy, its allegorical potency, its genius writing and the sheer force of its whole. The way this film implodes Brazilian politics in the 60's is still 100% contemporary - also the way it magnifies a tragic histrionics that fits so well in our culture. No other film speaks so clearly (with hysterical clarity) about our inner and outer political struggles.

  2. dionysus67's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    Orgiastic political diatribe on Brazil's trauma of dispossession that haunts revolutionary activism as the 'hour of decision'. Exploding into a universal gospel of alienation, Rocha's trance-like close-ups, Brechtean touches and dreamlike disorienting sequences capture feverishly the magma of effervescence from which utopian constellations arise before solidifying into petty and philistine political mouthpieces.

  5. empathymachine's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    rocha's camera acts less as a typical means to capture a story but more as an transmitter and agent of chaos, an animal both bound by and set free by instinct -- it never stops moving, and the primacy of the moment overtakes all else. very inspiring

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    Dans un pays fictif, "l'Eldorado", maintenu dans la dépendance par les forces internationales du capitalisme, le poète Paulo Martins est partagé entre sa loyauté envers un politicien en place, Dom Porfirio Diaz, et ses aspirations militantes vers les mouvements révolutionnaires ..... A VOIR !

  8. Alejandro sotelo's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    Entranced Earth, for most of its lenght, depicts the discovery of the characters in a frenetic editing pace, reminiscient-of-Marienbad treatment of space and time and unsettling photography fundled to a time-lapsed, crowning catharsis: a convulsed portrait of the humans beneath the political archetypes.

  9. jonijtr's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    messy and the mixing is bad, but this is a truly strong commentary at that time, not only for the fasict regime for Brazil during that time, but for politics as a whole. also the editing kinda reminds me of early Resnais

  10. Rafael Zen's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    The trance here is a metaphor for both: convulsion and apathy. As the machine gun bursting through its soundtrack, Rocha fires to every political piece that glues a corrupted system together - one by one. And what a beautiful frontline this is: Entranced Earth combines a cinematic explosion with a point of view, always fearless with those unstoppable cameras and full time carnivals. A brazilian gem to its finest.

  11. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Entranced Earth

  12. Diderot's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    A great movie about the political machinations of power and a naive and idealistic poet-journalist who gets caught up in them.

  13. Stevie's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    Rocha expertly outlines the failings of the political establishment and how, unfortunately, impossible it is to have a true people's revolution in the modern bourgeois world. Visually, the film is stunning and anarchic in its form. A new restoration/release would be greatly appreciated as can't help but think it would only enhance the film's power.

  14. irish_aris's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    a powerful political story that turned into a poorly made film. Still a lot to think and consider.

  15. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    At almost 50 year vintage, this beautifuly shot & poetic film is truly current and relevant! Should be part of primary school curricula... at least in LATAM... it would bring some things down!!

  16. Mtume Gant's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    Few films show the horrors of the political class like this one. Its visual language is one of a kind and understands some stories are best told from the the poet rather than the journalist. Masterful

  17. Tutu888's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    Except for the poet who can’t talk straight dialogues, the poor work of the sound department, the C-level of acting, the unnecessary close-ups or long distance shots and the awful way light has been used this was a brilliant film.

  18. Joao Pedro Amorim's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    cinematically it is a bomb - photography, composition, sound, acting, everything. it loses something for being politically so descriptive - the dialogues are too much focused on political strategy, rather than actual politics. when the film gets emotional - it happens quite often-, it really hits you.

  19. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    an interestiing film about poetry and politics. it will come off as pretentious but it has great composition, fluent hand-held shots allowing long takes that arent stagnant and great use of closeup. But i couldn't take more than 60 minutes of it.

  20. Jools Kay's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    Coming from the deepest depths, it breathes beautifully when it reaches the surface

  21. Nuno Ferreira's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    One of the best films that show what politics is all about.

  22. Juurakkotukka's rating of the film Entranced Earth without english subs. :/

  23. Mighty Quinn's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    The film is told in a non-linear fashion, composed of one surreal scene after another in striking black & white. Charaters address the camera with their political dialogue, music starts and stops, rapid editing and hand held shots of people in close up - these elements have been used before and since Entranced Earth, but here it's so fresh, so evocative, so engaging that the film makes for a wholly unique experience.

  24. tiago's rating of the film Entranced Earth

    Outra obra-prima do Glauber Rocha, a câmera delira, qual o sentido da poesia nesse inferno político chamado Eldorado, ? O afiado roteiro de Glauber grita : "- Um homem não pode se dividir assim. A política e a poesia são demais pra um só homem.". Um mundo em transe.
